Central Vermont Eyecare

LEED Certified New Construction

Client:   Central Vermont Eyecare
Location:   Rutland, VT
Surface Area: 4,900 ft2
Cost:   $980.000
Architect:   NBF Architects

The new home for “Central Vermont Eye Care” is a 4900 square foot, state-of-the-art  eye care facility.  Patients can enjoy a panoramic  view via a row of large picture windows in the spacious reception area, which also features a cherry panel ceiling, cherry trim and walls, soffit lighting, flat screen TV, and high tech sound system. Glass blocks separate the waiting room from the dispensing and reception areas. While light needed to be eliminated completely from the 8 exam and 2 treatment rooms, clerestory windows allow for an abundance of natural light throughout the common areas, staff lounge and offices.

The Challenges

Designed by NBF Architects, this project was built to achieve LEED certification, which emphasizes sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, usage of renewable and recycled materials and indoor environmental quality. The building will therefore be inexpensive to operate and maintain, while providing a healthy indoor environment for staff and patients alike.

The Meadows at East Mountain

Assisted Living Facility with separate Special Care Wings in Rutland, Vermont

Client:  The Meadows at East Mountain
Location: Rutland, VT

The Meadows at East Mountain is a sixty room Assisted Living facility
designed to make residents feel at home with cozy common and dining areas and a beautiful garden area with a gazebo.   Large windows, detailed woodworking, multiple fireplaces and chandeliers are found throughout.

In 2007 and 2014, Russell Construction Services built 2 additional Special Care Wings to provide the Assisted Living Facility with a combined total of 20 additional beds to provide an intimate, homey and secure unit for residents assessed with greater physical and/or cognitive limitations. It allows  residents to “age in place” and avoid most long-term nursing home placements. Although it specializes in meeting the needs of those with dementia, it also services those residents who require extra physical support.

The new buildings feature a nurses station, kitchen, dining area office space, and a fenced in back yard with a sensory garden with fountains and stamped concrete sidewalks.

The additions were built while the existing facilities and wings were fully occupied.
